The rear wheels are really gorgeous. The grey Murci is very desirable with those lovely wheels, not more than the black Murci LP though.

What you guys talking about ? Where are the different rims on the LP640 ? Ofcouse, the look different because the rear wheels are bigger hence the rim is deeper. Those are standard rims on the murcielago and the Hermera ones are optional.

Those wheels are from the Murcielago Barchetta, to be precise. Those were especially made for the Roadster. Sorry for being pedantic.

Here's a pic for reference:

Aren't they available on the regular Coupe as well? Or is it only specific to the Barchetta? Anyway, I was close enough

They were standard on both the coupe and barchetta.

Case one - You are saying it is different from the normal LP 640 ones. "Yes, they are. These are the standard rims (even on the LP640) while the one you see normally are 'optional' Hermera rims"

Case two - The front and rear rims are different "Yes, Because the front wheels are smaller and rims are less in depth than the rear, it is quite normal for supercars, check the barchetta on top, those are the very same rims without the graphite finish"

I agree with you on the above two points but i think the Hemera rims are standard while the ones seen on this are optional. The rear rims are deeper but i couldn't see the 5 spokes going inside clearly until i zoomed to the fullest. Sorry, my bad

AFAIK, that grey LP640 is the first LP to have been delivered in India.

What ??
I think this is the first time anyone reported the spotting of a grey LP640, how possibly can the owner hide the car away all these years unless he was keeping it 'in' his house. I doubt bro, i think the first LP640 to be delivered via lambo india was a yellow one(not the pune car, it is a direct import). IIRC, there are only few LP640's a which are not yellow - ecks's lp(arancio atlas), ab's ex-lp(baloon white) and the rumoured verde ithaca lp. Can someone confirm ?

Is it a new one or just a color change?

Bro, the only LP we don't know the current status is the yellow one which crashed in mumbai. Possible if they rebuilt it and changed the color and rims. But that car was MH regn(4545) and this car is DL. No clue !

The grey car is the first LP640 delivered in India, to a Delhi buyer.
